Sometimes identifying tasks can be tricky, especially using arbitrary task names.
For this reason, all ClickUp tasks have a unique task ID making them easily identifiable for your whole team.
Task ID in the URL
You can find the task ID at the end of the URL when you're viewing a task.
Task ID in the task menu
Task ID in List view
Find a task ID in List view after revealing the ID column!
Pro tip: List view IDs are click-to-copy
To automatically add Github, GitLab, or Bitbucket commits to tasks, in the front of a commit message, include the ClickUp task ID. You must also include a hashtag in front of the ID.
Task URL: https://app.clickup.com/333/821/t/qh5n
Task ID: #qh5n
Commit message: "#qh5n Changed background color of landing page, red to purple"
Custom Task IDs
With Custom Task IDs, you're able to set IDs like
Sales-123 that automatically increment by 1 with every new task you create.
Custom Task IDs makes it easier to:
- Reference and remember tasks in meetings
- Reference tasks via our git integrations (e.g. Github, GitLab, Bitbucket)
Note: If you have Tasks in Multiple Lists enabled, tasks that are in multiple Lists have a Home List (the List farthest to the left in task view). When using these integrations, you must link your git repo to the Space that contains the Home List. Linking your repo to a Space that does not contain the Home List will not work. This is true whether you're using a Custom Task ID or normal ClickUp ID.
